About the exhibition
Words by Russell Leng
Lines and Limits is a group exhibition of upper level painting students responding to the theme of Borders. Some artists have looked outward, offering an aesthetic response to geo-political, environmental, or social topics. Other artists used the painting process as a way to bravely move through personal boundaries that at one time seemed impermeable.
In this context, the visual cue of a ‘line’ becomes a potent symbol. Demarcating, dividing, flashing, inviting, or describing. The line ranges from delicate and porous to solidly enforced with a wide range of materials such as spray paint, thorns, LED lights, plaster, oil pastels, in addition to traditional painting mediums. The month-long inquiry process challenged artists to open themselves and spill into their work, inevitably confronting their own borders along the way.
